Mark Skwarek showcases a series of recent augmented reality
interventions created across the globe. These confrontational,
politically charged works are created by the artist and his community.
Skwarek acts as instigator and organizer for the community at large
and several of the pieces feature an array of contributors joining
arms in a virtual protest. From the 1st augmented reality in North Korea to the theft of the British Museum's parthenon marbles the work will bend the meaning of reality, public and private space in digital age. The work is unique because location and budget were not restrictions on the projects.
For this exhibition, Skwarek will release his greatest collaborative work ever-
